I’m doing the Labor Day sale thing! (I maaaaaybe do one sale a year, so this won’t happen again anytime soon!) 15% off everything in my shop, just use sale code LABORDAY15 at checkout from now through Monday.
Two weeks from tomorrow, it’s The Dirtiest Most Bizarre Art Show That Is Not in an Alley, Ever! It’s our sixth year with this one day festival, which features punk music, outsider art, freakshow performers, and all the coolest people you know in Detroit all in one place. We’ll be there with all the carnival punks we’ve been teasing out all summer, and we hope you will be too! Click here for all the details!
Poor Blanche came for some serious spa time, which you’d think would cheer a girl up. She spent the whole time sniffling though; I’m not sure if she was allergic to my garden or just thought she was going to have to weed it (the thought makes me kinda pouty too!)
Blanche is my 59th custom Blythe, done as a commission. You can see her entire photo shoot in her Flickr album.
Elle is a sweet blonde girl with a hint of mystery about her. She is my 55th custom Blythe, and is available for adoption in my shop.
Zara has ankle length wefted human hair, gorgeous ebony skin, and the sweetest personality. She’s my 57th custom Blythe, and she’s available for adoption in my shop.
I had so much fun doing this commissioned Blythe inspired by Boo from Monsters, Inc. She’s got her monster suit on and her kitty doll, but she just can’t stop pouting. 😀 You can see the rest of her photo shoot on Flickr.
Here is Teddy Lupin’s teddy bear, created for him in the image of his father, Remus Lupin, during one of his transformations. What else would the orphan son of a werewolf comfort himself with?
I’ve created this little mohair doll in the style of a vintage teddy, and listed him in my shop for (actual) werewolf children or the adult collectors who love them.
Sammy was born with a third eye and a long ridge of spikes down his back. Despite the fact that the spikes had caused an unusually painful childbirth, his mother loved him very much and did what she could to make his monstrosities seem normal. She immediately made him a little stuffed bunny that looked just like him, and Sammy loved his bunny and took him everywhere. Does your inner monster child long for a mutant bunny of your own to love?
I’ve created this little mohair doll in the style of a vintage mohair teddy, using top quality chocolate brown Intercal mohair. His limbs and neck are jointed and poseable, and he is stuffed with glass beads for weight and synthetic polyfil for hugging. I hand painted his golden-red glass eyes, sculpted his claws, and needle felted his many spikes.
This sweetie is available for adoption in my shop.
Deep in the glade, a little faun child has lost his favorite toy, a sweet little imp of a stuffed goat. Won’t you comfort him?
I’ve created this little mohair doll in the style of a vintage mohair teddy, using top quality crimson Intercal mohair. His limbs and neck are jointed and poseable, and he is stuffed with glass beads for weight and synthetic polyfil for hugging. I hand painted his golden glass eyes, sculpted his claws, and needle felted his horns and hooves. He is handmade and not perfect, but very adorable and made with love and attention to detail. He is approximately 9″ tall.
This devilish little imp is available in my shop.
Ludwig Bemelmans’ Madeline stories were among my childhood favorites, mostly because Madeline was a total troublemaker. She ran away from boarding school, taunted tigers at the zoo, and joined a gypsy band’s circus. And all of that went down before she even hit puberty. So you know that teenage Madeline had to be absolutely hell on wheels, and I had to make that grown up version of her as a doll.
